The Change (Unbounded, #1) by Teyla Branton

The Change by Teyla Branton



There are only two ways to kill Unbounded, and fire isn’t one of them—as law school dropout Erin Radkey learns the hard way. By fluke of a recessive gene, she has become Unbounded, a nearly immortal being with paranormal abilities. 

Erin’s Change separates her from her loved ones and alters everything she believes to be true. A week earlier she was considering a marriage proposal; now she contemplates the best way to stay alive. Caught in a battle between two Unbounded groups, she is also hunted by a secret mortal society sworn to eradicate the Unbounded gene. Worse, a new identification software could mean death for all Unbounded—or enslavement for the entire mortal world. 

As Erin plunges into this dangerous new life, she must carve out her own place in the madness, protect her mortal family, and decide which group she should join. Her powerful attraction to Ritter Langton, whose family was massacred by opposing Unbounded two hundred and forty years ago, complicates her choices. There are no second chances. Death, life, or love—Unbounded always play for keeps. 

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So, I kinda want to be Unbounded. I say kinda because I'm not much of a fighter and you need to be one if you are Unbounded.
Erin is badass, she's thrown into this amazing, yet dangerous new world and she faces the threats head on. She slowly discovers her new abilities and makes the best of it.
I liked how the advantages and disadvantages of near immortality were addressed. And also how envy and fear to the unknown can make people commit the most heinous acts.
There's non-stop action and lots of sexual tension throughout the book, balanced with details of what implies being Unbounded.
Fast-paced, an interesting mythology and a lot of twists and turns.
